EP1 RED SUMMER CAMP 2013 WITH MY NEW CLASS


varee chiangmai school

 Body Parts Group Activity

Summer Camp at Varee Chiangmai School is a much more informal time for the EP1 Red pupils and it is promoted as a mandatory requirement for new EP1 children to attend, as it gives these post-kindergarteners the opportunity to casually ease into the EP1 programme and more importantly to get to know each other and make new long-lasting friendships!

I will aim to put up as many images and posts to ensure that you remain informed about what your child is learning in EP1 Red as well as any other important information, dates or requests.

As you may already be aware the major theme for this years Varee Chiangmai School Summer Camp was ‘ASEAN Adventure’.

 teach in Asia
Flag of ASEAN

The aim of this theme was to not only make the children aware of  the basic concept of ASEAN and the countries which it includes but more importantly, to teach and explore in a basic yet fun way the culture, traditions, foods and indeed popular interests that make up the very different ASEAN nations.

This particular entry of the EP1 Red blog will convey to you only a small portion of what the children have been actually doing during  my 2 weeks teaching/guiding them.

Unfortunately I am unable to write and post images which will include all the  learning activities that your child will take part in during their time in my class. So please keep in mind that this blog is not a comprehensive account of what your child is learning, in fact it will only be somewhat of a ‘snapshot’ of what they are doing on a fortnightly or monthly basis.

The pictures below show the children having to colour the 10 ASEAN country flags correctly and label them accordingly. An activity the majority of the EP1 Red pupils can do without reference.

The last thing that children want to do once they have finished their work is nothing! So those who are slightly ahead of their friends are encouraged to choose a book they like and read until the whole class can move onto the next fun activity. Even if at this stage reading in English may not be completely familiar, just connecting images to text is very important and of course beneficial.DSC07336DSC07337

English as a subject is the most important and indeed the most prevalent with regards to weekly lessons within the English Programme here at Varee Chiangmai School.


The second most important subject is science.

The activity below  introduced the children to the topic of plants, which they will learn more about in detail once school starts academically in May.

The premise was to create a basic representation of a flower and label it, with of course the assistance of the English teacher.

The activity below was simple yet fun and involved the children creating and labelling the ASEAN country flag of their choice.

The images below show the children playing a maths game using the interactive whiteboard. The interactive whiteboard I believe, is one of the most invaluable educational resource available to an English Programme teacher and its varied applications are only limited by the teacher’s imagination.

This particular game involved a child with the very ‘vocal’ help of the entire class to put the eggs in order of the smallest to the largest. A great 10 minute introduction to any maths lesson.DSC07403DSC07404DSC07405DSC07406DSC07408DSC07410


Songkran Activities

The pictures below show the children of EP1 Red paying their respects to their ‘elder’ teachers and in turn being blessed by them.

The Songkran festival is not all about having fun with water which, in fact the children did do later that afternoon but it is in fact a time for sons and daughters to pay their respects to their parents, grandparents and other older members of their family.

I hope you enjoyed this first entry to the EP1 Red class of 2013’s blog.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s English language development than please do not hesitate to approach me personally or indeed E-mail me.

Kind regards….Teacher Chaz.

Weeks 9 to 16 in EP1 Red (September 2012)


varee chiangmai school

Dear ep1 red VCIS Parents and guardians,

Below are some of the many varied lessons your children took part in during weeks 9 through to 16 here at Varee Chiangmai International School.

I hope you enjoy!

In English the children of EP1 Red have recently started a new activity which tests their writing, memory and comprehension skills.

The children of EP1 Red have read the story of the Ugly Duckling for around 2 weeks and were then asked to order the sequence of events which occur in the story by writing key sentences then drawing a picture which relates to it.

This is an exceptionally useful activity as it requires the children to skim read through the book in order to successfully recall the specific sentences they need to create the story map.

All the children of EP1 Red do this simple yet hugely beneficial activity at least once a week and as you can see from the images they really get into it!!

The children also recently created a story map from reading the Dr Seuss classic “Go Dog Go”.

In science the children of EP1 rounded off learning about vertebrates by cutting and colouring in the skeletons of popular vertebrates then sticking them into their project books and writing a sentence about them unaided.

Over these few weeks in Science the children of EP1 Red have also completed their studies on habitats and to finally wrap up this specific unit the children integrated the learning of this topic with art by dividing their project book into 4, sticking 3 pieces of coloured cut paper to represent a specific habitat and then drawing and labelling the animals which dwell there.

In Health the children have just completed their studies on the 5 senses and will this coming week move onto the topic of Healthy Foods and the food plate and its specific components.

Very recently the children of EP1 Red were involved in a school wide competition on the 2012 olympic games.

Their chosen country was Peru.

The children had to produce work which told people about the key facts about their chosen country.

In Social the children have finished off learning about the family by producing a beautiful “representation” of a family tree in their project books.

In CAT the children completed their unit on The Rooms of the House by drawing a house with a ruler in their project books then labelling and colouring it.

Finally in ART, which is primarily an integrated subject, which can be used to teach any of the topics covered in the English subjects listed above, the children created a representation of a fish using basic art materials and then labelled its parts.

(The children are currently in Science learning about all the different classifications of vertebrates. This includes mammals, fish, birds reptiles and amphibians.)

Completed Fish in Project Book.

Thank you for visiting the EP1 Red blog.

I would just like to state again that the images in this blog only show a fraction of how the children have been learning within the EP1 Red classroom.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s English language development than please do not hesitate to approach me during school hours.

Kind regards………………Teacher Chaz.
